About SHSP

The School of Health Sciences and Practice is a founding member of the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health (ASPPH).

The New York Medical College School of Health Sciences and Practice is located just 15 miles north of the New York City limits, in suburban Westchester, we offer exceptional opportunities to upward-mobile professionals from varied backgrounds. More than 3 million people live in our primary catchment area, which includes the scenic Hudson River valley and parts of Connecticut and encompasses a variety of community settings – urban, suburban, and rural.

Most of our faculty are actively involved with local health departments, health systems, and other agencies. The region has a rich history and highly developed network of social services, advocacy for children and the elderly, disability services, and vocational rehabilitation.

Our public health programs are accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), and feature online and late afternoon and evening on-campus classes to match the busy schedules of working professionals.

Our full-time weekday professional programs, in physical therapy and speech-language pathologyadd a community-oriented perspective that does not occur in most other teaching settings. Service-based learning activities integrate health sciences and public health practice with the clinical arts.

Founded in 1860, New York Medical College is one of the nation’s largest private health sciences universities. It has a strong history of involvement in the social and environmental determinants of health and disease, and special concern for the poor, the powerless, and the helpless.
